How The 2024 Lunar New Year Affects Each Chinese Zodiac Sign's Horoscopes This Week

An extraordinary week is upon us between February 5 - 11, 2024! It's all because it's the Lunar New Year week!

So whether you celebrate the Chinese New Year in a big way or keep it lowkey, expect the cosmic energies to be extra heightened now.

Wishes, desires, and blessings will be free for all ... as long as the cosmic terms and conditions are met.

The I Ching hexagram of this week is Fire over Fire (#30), which is changing to Thunder over Fire (#55). Its message is a simple yet powerful one — when the forces of the world are on your side, don't be short-sighted.

It can feel like the great blessings will continue forever, like a fountain of youth or gold, but that's not so.

When you have the ability and the internal fire to do so, make plans for the present and the future simultaneously.

That includes during Lunar New Year week when the collective goodwill generates a ton of manifestation energy.

How will you tap into the fountain if you don't even know what you want its water for? Now, let's focus on the weekly horoscopes for each Chinese zodiac sign for February 5 - 11.

How the 2024 Lunar New Year affects each Chinese zodiac sign's horoscopes this week:
